I'm a bit slow in reacting, I suppose, Ian, but the owners of this - still private! - Middachten Estate (with farming grounds and extended woods) have always been very modern and progressive. Nowadays the owners are the Count and countess zu Ortenburg.http://www.middachten.nl/
How are you? I am fine, sort of.
The brown pastures are actually brown because the grasses are in heavy seed. It has been a good growing season for pastures. If the country were mowed it would look very green.
Over the first range, the valley is that of Bella Creek, a tributary of the Yabba. I have taken you into the Bella Valley on Panoramio previously, and you liked the creek scenery very much.
All the best,
The ranges are forested and have become the domain of deer, whilst these upper valleys are used for grazing cattle. Warm regards from the Mary Valley.
Yes indeed, Berend. There are many roads through and around the forest plantations, and the terrain is interesting as well. One day... you will enjoy it all too.
Thanks RNLatvian. I enjoyed the variety of public art in Berlin.
Thank you, Caroline. I am pleased that you have enjoyed what I saw.
Greetings from Australia
